At the outbreak of the Second World War, Jean Smith and Betty Clark were evacuated along with other children to Witchett End. Jean and Betty were billeted in a rambling old house, the home of a strange old widow, Mrs Meggs, whom the villagers held in awe. When a magpie, whom Mrs Meggs called ‘Jack’, stole Jean’s hair-clip, they, too, wondered if they were surrounded by magic and suspected Mrs Meggs was a witch.
